Having Killed
translated from the Pali by
Thanissaro Bhikkhu



As she was standing to one side, a devata recited this verse to the Blessed One:

Having killed what do you sleep in ease? Having killed what do you not grieve? Of the slaying of what one thing does Gotama approve?

[The Buddha:]

Having killed anger you sleep in ease. Having killed anger you do not grieve. The noble ones praise the slaying of anger; with its honeyed crest & poison root; for having killed it you do not grieve.
